Masterful twists

Some of my favorite films are those that kept me on my toes until the end. I love a good twist to the story - good as in it's not easily predicted or illogical. Which movies and filmmakers mastered the twist ending for you?

I think Jordan Peele has it down to a fine art in ways that are fresh and add to the plot. He doesn't create twists, just to create twists.

I don't believe anyone does twists as well as M. Night Shyamalan. Although he has been a bit guilty of creating twists just for the sake of it,but they're truly well-crafted twists and totally unexpected. The ending in Glass was particularly good, largely because I expected a twist at some point, but had no idea when. It builds anticipation.

Tarantino pulled off the surprise finale in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. It was his in-your-face style, but I liked the twist on a real person's life (Sharon Tate's).

I think my mouth dropped when I saw the twist in The Sixth Sense. Another good but really gross twist was in a classic, Chinatown.
